TOR KENWARD

Location: California, Napa Valley usa
TOR-JeffTor Kenward spent 27 years as a senior executive with Beringer Vineyards working in winemaking and marketing, helping to build a wine company known to collectors worldwide for its outstanding Reserve and single vineyard Cabernet Sauvignons. He retired in 2001, and along with his wife Susan, started TOR Kenward Family Wines, a small wine company based on single vineyard Cabernet Sauvignons and Chardonnays. The winemaking at TOR is driven by the same philosophy: constantly striving for the best, whatever it takes.

Tor Kenward Family wines are very small production of single vineyard wines. The winemaking is done in a minimalist style, natural yeasts, no fining or filtering. Every effort is made to allow these great vineyard sites to develop their individual voice and personality. Tor works exclusively with small cooperage houses in France to ensure they have the best barrels. Grapes are hand sorted, and his wines are crafted in very small cuvèes to receive minimal handling. Tor's philosophy is "If we harvest what we consider world-class grapes, our job as winemakers is to stay out of the way. That takes experience and patience, but can be very rewarding when it all comes together".
